ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the Jets fear Sanchez has a partially torn labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder. Mort added the veteran quarterback will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews this week.
And that’s not all.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer learned Sanchez is also dealing with a shoulder dislocation. Jets doctors had to pop it back in its socket on the field as Sanchez was writing around in pain. Before he’s cleared to play, they have to make sure the shoulder stays in place.
Glazer reiterated not to expect Sanchez back in the near future. If the labrum tear is confirmed, Sanchez could be sidelined for quite a while.
No matter what the Jets say, it remains a real possibility that Sanchez has played his last down in New York.
